HR 40 has its name because Republicans promised 40 acres and a mule to the people freed by the Civil War.
#HR40 will study reparations and consider a 21st century version of this promise. I commend @HouseJudiciary for approving it and urge the Party of Lincoln to do right by it. https://t.co/q0wP81yKqP
Most Republicans are opposed to cash reparations.
The Democratic party is roughly split. Nearly half support giving cash reparations to the descendants of slaves. Roughly half oppose cash reparations.
